  • “Come Day, Go Day, Days Since Gone Away” is the name of the newest exhibit at the Delta Cultural Center, featuring photographs of the first King Biscuit Blues Festival by Craig Baird of Memphis, Tenn.. The exhibit will run through Jan. 31, 2014. While most of the photographs are of Helena's 1986 King Biscuit Blues Festival, a few additional images are of crowd scenes from the Mississippi Delta Blues Festival and a selection of color photographs from the Delta, circa 1986 – 1990. The title of the exhibit comes from a song recorded in the early 1970s by Robert Lockwood, Jr. and is representative of the melancholy found in passage of time and the remembrance of things past. A native of Mississippi, Baird has been in the architectural field for 30 years, and is currently project manager for an architectural firm in Memphis. He has been involved with photography most of his life and has done both personal and professional photography, including architectural photography for firms in both Jackson and Memphis. For more information, interested persons can call the Delta Cultural Center at (870) 338-4350, or toll free at (800) 358-0972, or visit the DCC online at www.deltaculturalcenter.com.
